John Schnadenberg

Street Department
Title: Commissioner
Phone: 219-926-2222

My family moved to Chesterton in the early 1970s, and I attended the Duneland Schools. Growing up in Chesterton I always enjoyed the small town atmosphere and eventually began my employment with the Town of Chesterton Street Department in December 1982.

In February 1985, I was promoted to Assistant Street Commissioner and in July 1985 was appointed Street Commissioner. At age 25, I faced many challenges within the department; but my goals have remained simple. I always strive to provide a high level of service to the town residents and to make as many improvements as possible with the funding provided. Our Street Department’s motto is “always move forward." I am married and have two children.

Other civic organizations I am a current member are:
  • Membership Director for the Indiana Street Commissioner’s Association
  • Member of the Chesterton Utility Board
  • Member of the Chesterton Police Reserves since 1988
